Grade 6 Up—During World War II, as the Nazis closed in, several Jewish families disappeared into the underground labyrinths of Western Ukraine. They stayed hidden for nearly a year, facing danger of discovery, malnutrition, and the disorientation of sensory deprivation. At the end of the war, they emerged triumphant due to ingenuity and family loyalty. Now Taylor, an American writer, filmmaker, and caving enthusiast, follows Nicola's lead to document this saga of survival. The men's own explorations of the Ukrainian caves provide a firsthand account and Taylor's striking photographs bring the story to life. The addition of survivor interviews, historical and contemporary photos, and quotes from survivor Esther Stermer's published memoir, We Fight to Survive, results in an extremely thorough account of events. This overwhelming thoroughness is the book's strength and weakness. On the one hand, it is a researcher's dream of excellent documentation; on the other hand, the detailed descriptions, lists of names, and exacting chronologies weigh down the story and make it somewhat difficult for its remarkable nature to shine through. Sophisticated vocabulary may also prove a challenge for young readers. Despite these drawbacks, the uniqueness of the setting and the power of the historical and modern stories being told will attract both browsers and report writers.—Heidi Estrin, Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL
